On terminology

supervillain:

Oh I get it. “Art-horror” is a great term for you to write around the idea that you just like horror films, intellectual cowardice runs deep y’all. There will never be anything more obvious than your shame for liking genre by writing about the respectable end of that being “different”. Of course, we’re in a time period where thoughtful writing about horror movies is at an epic fucking paucity, so I shouldn’t pick at that? But shit like that really just raises disgust in my core. Own it, or shut the fuck up. Just keep justifying yourself for liking something that you feel isn’t accepted by whomever you are writing towards, rather than discussing the tools and effects that genre utilizes that are unique to it. The opposite side of that is if you don’t need to couch everything in genre, instead of the tools of it and how they work. “These are special” why? Because you say so? Am I supposed to trust you? This isn’t just horror this is everything (for example this is a big part of why I don’t write about comics anymore) this is how you keep writing the same thing year after year instead of finding insight, this shit. I am not interested in what you want to canonize, I am interested in why. Your need to elevate bores the living shit out of me. I am not interested in you being a warrior for genre, either. That’s a dead end, and you end up on the side of idiots who can’t discern the difference. No one wants to be on the side of the “superheroes are modern myths” assholes and their ilk across all genres and subgenres. Is this movie a horror film or an art film is a question that only means something if you let it, and finding what is truly horrifying inside of a film, regardless of it’s pitched audience or dvd shelf placement, is what matters. Not that any of this matters, it’s all writing for the sake of discussion, if that. I can see your shame, instead of your passion or disgust, or any feeling worth reading about.

Your english degree is showing.

For Windows.

My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).

What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.

MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.

This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.

For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!

Now go draw, babies!

Very helpful! This works whenever my tablet is having any problems at all. It’s very simple and very effective!

This is a useful tip a friend taught me, so I thought I might as well spread the good word.
